Ted Boufis, owner and managing partner of Westwood Bistro, 950 North Western Ave., Lake Forest, grew up in the restaurant business. 

“My family owned restaurants in Indiana and I just love the business. I stuck with it even through college,” said Boufis, who also owns Grille No. 43 in Lake Bluff. “I learned different areas of the kitchen, including management. I learned the business from front to back and hands-on.”

Westwood Bistro, which opened in August of last year, is different than any other restaurant Boufis has been involved with.
